Big Family Holiday To The Isle Of Wight – Day Seven

A mixture of exhaustion, short tempered children, a bit of sun burn on Hubby’s back and the end of holiday blues, meant that Hubby and I weren’t really feeling our last full day on the Isle of Wight. We attempted to put on a brave face and headed to The Needles.  I had no idea what to expect from the …

Big Family Holiday To The Isle Of Wight – Day Six

I think by the sixth day, heading towards the end of our week, everyone was getting rather emotional and tired. The girls were becoming a little bit difficult but thankfully we had a new experience for the girls to enjoy, a Steam Railway. To be honest I don’t really know much about the Isle Of Wight and it’s history so …

Big Family Holiday To The Isle Of Wight – Day Five

After a pretty hectic day at Blackgang Chine, I was as exhausted. The girls were incredibly emotional and we all just needed a bit of a down day. A day to recooperate and rest. It was a brilliant day for some beach fun! So we packed up the car and headed with hubby’s MiL and Nan to St Helen’s beach. …

Big Family Holiday To The Isle Of Wight – Day Four

Everybody had been going on about visiting Blackgang Chine but I wasn’t entirely sure what it was. We’d arranged to go with my MiL on our fourth day and we headed off with me doing zero research beforehand. Which is very unlike me. Now that I’ve been I can tell you that Blackgang Chine is most definitely suited for children of …

Big Family Holiday To The Isle Of Wight – Day Three

In the morning of our third day the farmer at Kempshill Farm popped by to see if we wanted to watch the cows be fed. Of course the kids were really excited so we headed round the barns. He was really informative about the cows meat and explained how he operates and what types of meat we should actually be …

Big Family Holiday To The Isle Of Wight – Day Two

Despite having a long first day on the Isle Of Wight P2 still woke in the night. I hoped that the black out blind and being at the other end of the barn would help her sleep. It did a little bit on our first night as she only woke at 5 am which was much better than usual. However, …

Big Family Holiday To The Isle Of Wight – Day One

Last week we spent a full seven days on the Isle of Wight with nearly all of my MiLs side (nearly 20 of us) celebrating my MiLs big birthday. I will be posting several posts about our holiday over the next few days or maybe weeks as we have been getting up to so many things in the past week …

Picking Our Own Pearls At Isle Of Wight Pearl – IOW 2018

I can’t believe I’m still writing these posts over two weeks after our actual trip! Life has been crazy which hopefully I’ll get round to writing about soon. I sort of miss my personal blog posts. Finally the sun was shining, typically for our last full day on the island. There was blue skies over our caravan at The Orchards …

IOW 2017 Day 5 – A First Swimming Lesson, Isle Jump & Sandown Beach

Our fifth day on the Isle Of Wight was definitely our most relaxed one. We needed it by this point as our days were long with many late nights and early mornings. Our little family needed to just chill for a little.  We woke up to beautiful sunshine so P1 had her breakfast outside on the decking of the House …

Special Needs Diary #7 – Going On Holiday

Dear Diary, I am writing this just four days after our big family holiday, but you most likely won’t be reading it until a few weeks later. Holidays are always something I really get anxious about with P1. As she’s getting older she is becoming more aware of her surroundings, she has preferences and can get rather emotional and hard …

IOW 2017 Day 6 – Steam Railway & Ryde Beach

Hilariously my alarm went off, I set up my camera to film me for a few seconds and then accidentally fell back to sleep. I had about ten minutes of footage watching me sleep. You can see a snippet of that in the opening of my video below that accompanies this blog post.  The idea of getting myself up earlier …

IOW 2017 Day 2 – JR Zone, IOW Pearl & Scuba Diving

I lost count of the amount of times I had to refill bottles of milk during our first night at The West Bay Club. P2 and P3 did not sleep well at all, especially P3. She ended up in our bed at 3am. She’s not used to sleeping in a travel cot and is usually my better sleeper out of …

Share Your Year – Our 2016

Last year I wrote a review of our year. I’d completely forgotten about it until I stumbled upon it a few weeks ago. I sat for a while reminiscing and decided that it would be a great idea to do this again and look back on our 2016. I know before I took the time to search, that this year …
